Photo: Bar stool elk photographed in Eagle Valley

EAGLE VALLEY, Colorado " Wildlife officers in Colorado's Eagle Valley have gotten lots of reports of a female elk with a bar stool stuck on its head.

While district wildlife manager Craig Wescoatt said the stool doesn't seem to be impeding the animal's movement, but wildlife officers haven't been able to get close enough to the elk to remove the extra headgear.

The animal was first seen about two weeks ago along Brush Creek, south of the Eagle Ice Rink.

It also was spotted west of Eagle, near the gas plant.

"She's very active," Wescoatt said. "The bar stool doesn't seem to be impairing her to any great degree. She just looks kind of goofy."
